UK News: MS doctor 'could face legal claims'

Sept 29, 2010

A doctor struck off by the General Medical Council for exploiting vulnerable multiple sclerosis sufferers could be facing legal action by hundreds of patients throughout the UK.
Solicitors Leigh Day & Co said it was looking into the possibility of seeking compensation for potentially "hundreds" of MS and spinal cord injury patients who travelled to Rotterdam to receive stem cell treatment from Dr Robert Trossel.
Jill Paterson, solicitor at the firm, said: "We support the GMC's findings that Dr Trossel is no longer fit to practise in the UK.
"We are actively investigating the pursuit of legal proceedings against him to right the wrongs caused to these vulnerable people."
The news of the possible legal action comes after Dr Trossel, 56, was struck off the medical register at the conclusion a long-running disciplinary hearing in central London into his involvement with MS sufferers.
